Juventus certainly have to postpone the celebration of the Italian Serie A title this season after a surprise defeat at the hands of Udinese earlier this morning.
Before the match, Bianconneri had a 6-point lead over Atalanta, who was ranked 2nd. In other words, they only need one more win to ensure the Scudetto title this season.
On Matchday 35, Juventus faced Udinese, the match was held on Friday morning West Indonesia Time (07/24). Despite playing at the opponent’s base, Maurizio Sarri’s troops were actually more favored to win, because of their ambition to seal the trophy earlier.
Sure enough, The Old Lady excelled first thanks to goals scored by Matthijs De Ligt at the end of the first half. But in the second half, Juventus found their goal missed two goals, each by Nestorovski and Fofana.
As a result, the defending champions of the competition must be willing to end the match with a narrow defeat of 1-2. As a result of this defeat, Juventus must postpone the celebration of the Italian Serie A title this season.
Certainly very disappointing, and coach Maurizio Sarri also looked disappointed with the performance of his players who tend to be so eager to win.
“This is what happened lately, we lost the organization and form of the game. After a good first half we really wanted to win the game and we messed up, making the match even more dangerous.
“We lost in the 92nd minute because we really wanted to win the match,” Sarri told Sky Sport Italia.
However, Sarri believes his players will improve the poor performance when dealing with Sampdoria tomorrow weekend.
“It’s hard to find balance, we are all exhausted and the team is having trouble playing attacking. Organizations today are more important than aggression, ”
“In the first half we played well. After the equalizer we showed a bad reaction. We have to play more calmly. It’s hard to maintain mental and physical for 90 minutes. We have to take lessons from this defeat and try to fix it, “said Sarri.
If you win against Sampdoria, practically the Scudetto title this season successfully defended Juventus.
